Nintendo have announced that the Wii passed the 6 million sales mark as of 28th November 2009. This makes the console officially the fastest selling console in the UK.
Just shy of 3 years ago, the Wii made its big British debut on December 6 2006. The release was implimented by a host of celebrities including — Ian Wright, Ricky Hatton, Nell McAndrew and Pat Cash.
“With its inclusive, family-friendly and fun nature, we’re very pleased Wii seems to have captured the imagination of over six million families across the UK and reached such a landmark sales figure in such a short space of time,” said Nintendo UK boss David Yarnton. “We’ll work even harder to ensure that the interest in Wii stretches over months and years, appealing to people of all ages and gaming experience.”
Although they have annoyed many of its older followers, by releasing very few games to cater for the hardcore gamer market, Nintendo’s strategy seems to be paying off. With their focus on games for children and family friendly titles, Nintendo have achieved worldwide domination and introduced a whole new variety of people to gaming.
